All-Door Boarding Expansion

 

Metro strives to be the nation’s leader in transit innovation.

 

All-Door Boarding (ADB) pilot program intends to reduce bus stop dwell times and variability, by allowing customers with valid TAP cards to enter at all doors.

 

The 6 month Silver Line All-Door Boarding (ADB) pilot program has proven to be successful that results in faster boarding through more efficient fare collection.

 

The Silver Line All-Door Boarding pilot serves as a great example for innovation and evidence-based results throughout the agency.

 

With the evaluation from the pilot program, Metro now has the framework on expanding All-Door Boarding to new lines across Los Angeles County.
